Egyp'tian (properly מַצרַי, Mitsri', Αἰγύπτιος; but often in the plur. as a rendering in the A.V. of מַצרִיסַם, Egypt), a native of the land of Egypt (q.v.); found in the sing. masc. (Ge 39:1, etc.; Ac 21:38, etc.), fem. מַצרַית (Ge 16:1), plur. masc. מַצרַים (Ge 12:12,14; Ac 7:22, etc.), fem. מַצרַיּוֹת. (Ex 1:19). The Egyptian insurrectionist of Ac 21:38, seems to have been a mountebank (γόης, Josephus, War, 2:13, 5), or pretended prophet (Ant. 20:7, 6). See PAUL. That country was proverbial for such characters.
